I'm sure, it's only matter of short time, until somebody implements Python or other languages support for the GNOME shell.
no, you cannot mix different virtual machines with different garbage collectors within the same process. GObject simply does not support this because it's insane.
if extensions were to be executed out of process then you would not be able to monkey patch internals, so there are various trade-offs to consider.
